Hi, my name is BIll (Onemagicman) and I live in San Diego, CA. I have been a certified KCBS & CA. judge over the years and currently am not active due to the lack of contest no longer available in Souther CA. The money has realy dried up!
I recently retired from NAPA Auto Parts. I love, love smoked food.
I purchased an MBS40 from Sam's Club last year and am now producing my own product at home. I had a charcoal Brinkman years ago and what a difference in ease of use.
While I do use the smoker too often as there is only two of at home now a days I have done ribs, pork butt and chicken a few times. I have tried brisket twice and failed so miserbly, one of them I had to through it out.
Like in most contests they can be won or lost on a good brisket, I will master it and be in "smoker heaven."
With spring here it is time to take the cover off and roll into the back yard and try again.
I enjoy this forum very much.
